TOKYO, October 24. /TASS/. The first festival of the Russian culture organized at the initiative of Russia’s diaspora opened on Saturday in Kobe, the sixth-largest city in Japan.

The director of the event, Natalya Bogoudina, said at the festival the visitors will taste the Russian food and visit numerous master classes and a Russian fair. Mayor of Russia’s Urals city Yekaterinburg, Yevgeny Royzman, will be among the festival’s guests.

"The program of the festival is called "Russia-Japan: Road in 150 Years." Our scenario is linked to history as there is a very big Russian diaspora here," Bogoudina said. "The festival is held for the first time, but we hope this will become a good tradition," she added.

The festival opened with an excursion during which the participants are due to visit the Dormition of the Holy Virgin Church built in 1952 and a cemetery where many representatives of the Russian diaspora are buried.

The visitors will also see a concert by the Russian and Japanese performers and dancers. The representatives of the Kobe mayor’s office will give a speech at the event.
